I will be exhibiting new work involving the human face as a software platform as well as giving a public presentation of my work as part of the exhibition FACELESS part II at freiraum quartier21 INTERNATIONAL.
I was an Artist-in-Residence at quartier21 during the month of October 2013. During my stay I conceived of a new project inspired by Sisi Empress of Austria, who's imperial stables are now the site for the residency program. I learned that Sisi was famous for her beauty and her efforts to maintain it. She was among the first women in the world to diet and the first to have an obsessive exercise regimen. She was also a victim of a cult of celebrity we now find commonly among music and movie stars. During my time at the residency Miley Cyrus was the centre of similar public scrutiny. Some accused Miley of being forced by record executives to perform as a sex object, while others asserted that Miley was using her sexuality as a form of self-empowerment. Interestingly very few people took Miley's own words at face value. Sisi hated the public for this same reason, they rarely thought of her as anything more than entertainment. I decided to make work that was critical of this historic injustice toward female agency. I conceived of new software that would allow a person to stay young forever by turning themselves into a unicorn, a symbol of eternal youth. In my own life, my wife is the woman with whom I am most obsessed, and so it naturally followed that I should create the software for her. In the final video performance my wife wears an augmented reality software mask that turns her into a unicorn. Despite the privilege of eternal youth she is completely disabled by the mask, I control her speech by tying her mouth to my own voice and she is only able to express herself by dancing to Miley Cyrus and painting with her unicorn horn. She will stay beautiful forever but has lost her voice to me in the process and is forced to communicate in a way that makes it impossible for her to say anything we could ever understand as more than entertainment.
My time at quartier21 was wonderful. The history and significance of the venue was inspiring and the staff was supportive. I continue to draw inspiration from my time there, and have begun a second project inspired by Sisi's death mask (on display at the nearby Sisi museum) and the recent death of my grandparents. It will consist of a series of death masks for modern times, scanned from the faces of ordinary people and printed in bright 3d printed plastic. I've attached a patent drawing that describes the process I hope to undertake.
